The Croatian’s future in charge of the Bavarians is in doubt after a mixed start to the season.
Kovac’s long-term future in the role looks far from secure and the German champions are looking at other options.
Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is a fan of Pochettino and is said to have his mobile number to hand.
Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is another candidate and is believed to be keen on a move to Munich.
The Dutchman is considered the favourite, but former RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick is an option too.
Pochettino himself has come under pressure this season after a slow start to the campaign.

Pochettino led Spurs to the Champions League final last season, where they were beaten by Liverpool.
